Accounting Documents
City of New Orleans Tax Assessor's Office 

“Every property in Orleans Parish has value. The Assessor's Office places a value on land, homes, commercial buildings and other taxable property in Orleans Parish as fairly and accurately as possible.  The Orleans Parish Assessor utilizes a Computer-Assisted Mass Appraisal system for maintaining property data and values to achieve greater tax equity through a uniform, transparent automated system.


The public can access this data through our Search Records function and can learn more by downloading our informational flyer,The Mass Appraisal Process.” (City of New Orleans, 2021).

Join L9WHA staff as we facilitate a discussion with Errol Williams from the City of New Orleans Tax Assessor's Office. The presentation will be facilitated by Gaynell Brady, Executive Director, Lower 9th Ward Homeownership Association (L9WHA).

The Whole 9

The Whole 9 is about listening. It’s community members knowing what their neighbors need. It’s our staff paying attention to what may be unspoken—is there something else we can help you with? Then it spreads out from there, as the people we touch become ambassadors for our work.
